    So, I fired up my VIA 1605 with MyDrive on my computer, and the home screen shows "Map Subscription expired"!!!!! This 1605 came with a 'Lifetime Updates"!
    When I go to the More Information, it says that the Lifetime Maps are available...for as long as the product is supported". Does this mean that my 1605 is now orphaned and not supported!!!!!

    No. If you have lifetime maps, they continue to be supported for that model.

    The Via 1605 is still one of the best looking resistive screens ever made - but SOME were ALSO only a 2GB device.

    @seve
    If your serial number begins with WM, I would be concerned about future updates. However, odds are slim that yours falls into this category.
    On the other hand, if it begins with WN, as did the vast majority sold into this market, you have a 4GB device and are exempt from the "EOL" issues with maps for now.
